a few months in poor transition?? Blimey you’re being very kind! Fortunately this is not something I use every day, but if I did I’d be livid. A week without a piece of working software as a professional is far too long. Months to sort it out its totally unacceptable.
The reply I got from support (eventually) was to “log on at the start of every day just to be sure”…now that is a joke. What if I had to do that with every plugin, VSTi etc? I’ve been using music tech software since the 80s and I have never had such a dreadful experience with a software company.
To answer Steve63 - no, it doesn’t work - at least, the last time I tried to authorise it it sent me round in circles. I eventually got it working but haven’t bothered to re-open it since. Better things to do with my time. I can happily use BFD2 and will probably get Slate - it’s a pity because when it works BFD3 is really good, especially on the transients and live ambience etc. But if I start using it and then find I cannot get back to a project because it’s locked me out - well, that’s no good.
I have zero confidence in the product. I’ll sit it out and wait until solutions are found. But I doubt very much they’ll get a penny more out of me for a version 4. I’d expect that free & gratis after all this mess.
